NO Where Would You Get The Power To Run The Air Conditioner


Well actually it is possible. You need to know the power consumption of the ac unit you wish to install. You need to know the amperage and voltage. If you get a simple window unit which runs off of 120 volts than it is entirely possible. The average house has a socket 20 amp breaker in the panel on a 120 volt system so a window should consume less than 20 amps. You need to find a power inverter to convert 12 volts in to 120 volts any it will need to be able to produce about 20 amps continuous. The inverter will cost you around $200, as this is very possible it is not that feasible. The vehicles' A/C system is more than enough to meet your demands where a window unit is just going over board.
